    No Pests, No Problem

    Rat Season

    When trapping or applying rodenticides in a void that is totally dark, does adding some illumination enhance the process? Will rats find and interact with the traps better if there is some light compared to using only their whiskers and body hairs to explore the dark environment?

    Appliance Defiance

    How should a PMP deal with the need to move appliances in a home in order to inspect, place traps, close holes, etc.? On one hand, we want to solve our customer's problems causing them the least amount of stress. On the other hand, we don't want to be liable for appliance damage or injuries sustained in the process.

    Wascally Wabbit

    I am trying to catch or repel a rabbit for my customer who has an eggplant and zucchini garden. The rabbit is eating the leaves overnight. I tried baiting a Havahart trap with carrots and lettuce and applying neem oil and bone meal around the garden. Any ideas about what else I can try?

    -ins vs. -oids

    I’m getting ready to add mosquito management to my services. I’ve been reading the Mr. Pest Control Q&As here on PestWeb. What application method do you consider a barrier treatment? It seems a mist blower is the go-to in the industry, but, in one of your answers, you mention it is only used as a knockdown, not a residual. I intend to use a mist blower to treat shrubs, trees and eaves.

    Remedies That Don’t Work

    I come across rodent problems every day and hear all kinds of things, including using moth balls or mint leaves to keep mice and rats away. Are these things true? If not, why are there companies making mint trash bags? Are there other “remedies” like these that work?

    You Can Lead a Rodent to Water…

    I have an idea to apply salt to standing water outside of a granary, as it would be easier and more cost effective than doing the dirty work necessary for better runoff at this point.
